Knocked out once again

October 18, 2019
Salmon lost to Randy Costa via TKO (punches) at 2:15 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Friday in Boston.
ANALYSIS
To recap, a guy named Boston was knocked out in Boston by an opponent who grew up just outside Boston. Got that? In all seriousness, Salmon's first two UFC bouts have been an unmitigated disaster. He has been knocked out on both occasions and lasted a grand total of 2:40. His durability -- which was never an issue prior to his arrival in the company -- is suddenly a big, big problem. Salmon is definitely more talented than he has shown, but sooner or later he has to win a fight.

Salmon lost to Khalid Taha via TKO (punches) at 0:25 of Round 1 at UFC 236 on Saturday in Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Not good. In arguably the biggest fight of his young career, Salmon lasted all of 25 seconds. A product of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series, Salmon earned his UFC opportunity with a unanimous decision victory over "Ricky Turcios" last July. There was some hype surrounding Salmon entering his official company debut, but this performance will take care of that.

Salmon (6-1-0) is scheduled to face Khalid Taha (12-2-0) in a featherweight fight April 13 at UFC 236 in Atlanta, Alexander K. Lee of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The two had initially been booked for a fight Nov. 30, but the fight was cancelled after Taha withdrew due to a torn ACL. With Taha now back to full health, Salmon will now prepare for his long-awaited UFC debut after he was awarded a contract during the first season of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series in 2017. Salmon had been in line to make his debut later that same year before requiring surgery to address a knee injury of his own and then having the Taha fight called off.
